    just discovered a really nice program, i have tried many similar tools but the reason why i like this one the best is because this tool shows the most sensor info, open source and fully portable too!! loving this tool. screenshots here

    a single exe version is available from my sig


    edit- it even shows the temp and health of my hard drives and it also picked up the fact that i am running crossfire (dual AMD graphics cards) and shows the temps and clock speeds of each one :thumb:

    Here is a screenshot of the desktop gadget, as well as the system tray info. I assume you already know what the main window looks like.

    CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE

    To add certain values to be shown on the desktop gadget and the system tray, through the main interface - right-click on the value you want shown and select "Show in Gadget" or "Show in Tray". This goes for anything - Temperatures, Fan Speeds, Voltages, Load. etc.. On mine, I prefer to only show system temperatures and load.

    Wishlist:
    I wish they would have an option to join selected values in one tray icon, with hover info capabilities (Pop out window), rather than several "individual" values. More than one value can make the system tray look quite cluttered.

    Thank you so much, that's exactly what I wanted to know: the configurability.
    And I totally agree with your wishlist.

    Regards.

    No problem, glad I could help:thumb:

    Yeah, that is the only thing I don't like about it. But, for the most part...It's a nice, user friendly application.
